Rustic Utensil Holders

Upholstery Webbing Rustic Utensil Holders Tutorial:

Spring is here, and that means it's time for some
wonderful meals Al Fresco!   We love to dine
outdoor, whether for breakfast, a crisp salad 
on a hot summer day, or a nice dinner in the warm 
summer nights, outdoor dining is one of our
family's favorite ways to enjoy the the warm weather. There is 
something rustic and natural about dining outdoors. 

  My daughter and I went to the fabric store this weekend 
to get fabric to make our sewing machine covers (post coming soon),and I can never seem to pass the burlap and webbing isle without stopping and picking up a few things.  I love all things
rustic, so I picked up some upholstery webbing for only a few cents a yard, and what did I decide to make... Rustic Utensil Holders of course!

Here is a simple 5 step tutorial for my Rustic 
Upholstery Webbing Utensil Holders:  

Step 1: I used 3 yards of Upholstery Webbing-
(This was plenty of fabric to make four holders)
Step 2: I measured and cut the fabric
to measure 19' inches in length.

Step 3:
I brought the webbing mid way up, and then folded it downward creating a 3' inch flap.  I used my utensils as a guide to where
 I wanted the slit/opening of the holder to be.

Step 4:
 I sewed the flap closed on all three sides
being careful not to sew the top of the flap shut.

Step 5:
I then sewed the rest of the holder shut along the sides, 
to create the "pocket" for holding the utensils.

And here are my rustic  
upholstery webbing utensil holders. 

Just in time to enjoy spring and summer outdoor dining! 
So the next time you visit your local fabric store, don't overlook the trim isle.  Who knew that a simple strip of furniture webbing at .79 cents a yard would make the perfect Rustic Utensil Holders?!
